Features

Just down the street from the Berkeley Bowl, you’ll find this brown shingle Craftsman ready to welcome you home.  It has all the requisites of a Berkeley Craftsman…. Great details, box beams, built-ins and two fireplaces, including a clinker brick fireplace in the dining room.

A classic renovation – with permit – has updated all the systems and brought out the best.  A large living room with vaulted ceiling opens onto the dining room and updated kitchen – with custom cabinets, quartz countertops, and breakfast bar.  Three bedrooms and two baths (yes, two) give you the extra space you need to grow from wherever it is you start.

You have a light open feeling throughout – surrounded by native gardens.  Two bedrooms open onto a landscaped backyard with a large flagstone patio interspersed with native ground covers.  Essentially, it’s two outdoor rooms for dining and entertaining and a private garden for contemplation.    This is Berkeley, after all.  Indeed, your own Berkeley oasis … 4 blocks to BART, a short walk to campus … and 15 minutes to San Francisco,

Neighborhood


Berkeley

Home to one of the most prestigious universities in the country, Berkeley offers the intellectual and cultural stimulation from its campus -- which is within walking distance of downtown. Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway.

Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location. For residents who like to savor their meals at home, small retail districts sprinkled throughout Berkeley allow them to shop like Europeans, going from store to store to purchase everything they need. Those in a hurry can always visit major grocery stores nearby.

Neighborhood green spaces abound throughout Berkeley, from small community gardens to the Berkeley Rose Garden -- which boasts more than 3,000 rose bushes. The gem of the area is 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park, with its miles of biking and hiking trails and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza.
